The DVD writer in my Sony RDR-VX525 VCR-DVD Recorder no longer finalizes disks. Why can't I just replace the DVD writer drive myself? Is this an off-the-shelf component? The flat fee repair from Sony is $110, more than a new DVD burner will cost. I just replaced the hard drive in my old TiVo without problem. How hard can this be?

Open it up and see
Usually these drives are not 'pc' drives
